Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Got my 1701-D issue 1 today and I love the quality of the ship, the magazine is very nice too.

Looking forward to the NX-01 when it comes out in a few weeks.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I'm also getting very interested in the magazine part of the subscription.

For the Ent-D and Constitution class and others, there's plenty of material to fill an issue.

When we get to the Akira class and Breen warship and Steamrunner... what we will get? There's almost no official or canon material on those ships besides the visuals.

What data and info will be in the magazine? What sources? What conjecture? Who will be writing about the Xindi ships, for example?

No. No articulating or removable parts on any model. Mainly for the simple reason of the way the ships mount onto the stands. Each stand is made custom to each ship and therefore has a unique way that the ship fits into it, so if you change something with a movable part, it might throw off the weight balance of the ship. For instance the wings on the B'rel-class Klingon Bird of Prey has its wings fixed in a straight out "flight" position instead of the downward slant that is "attack mode."


That said, the models I'm looking forward to the most are the ENT 22nd century-era ships. There will be the Klingon Raptor-class (the one they saved from the gas giant), the D-5 battle cruiser, Goroth's ship, and the Bird of Prey. There will also be the Romulan Bird of Prey. Plus at least 3 Xindi ships, the Reptilian, Insectoid, and Aquatic

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

^^^ I was wondering about that too. If you recall the mini-tech manual-ish "Starfleet Technical Databases" from the old "Star Trek Magazine" by Rich Sternbach which covered ship classes like the Constellation in unprecedented detail; I'd be happy with this sort of thing in the magazine. Yes, not strictly "canon", but Sternbach's level of expertise and behind-the-scenes information made them as close to official as you can get.

22nd century version from Enterprise, the "blue" one, TOS-R has "orange" ones.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

The Enterprise version was considerably more elaborate than the TOS version:

TOS Version
Enterprise Version

That being said, I'm glad they're making the Enterprise variant for this. Much cooler to look at.

The ones in Enterprise had more weathered metal and mostly blue glowing grills, with small yellow engines.

For Tholian Web remastered, the ships had different shapes and larger orange warp engines meant to look more advanced than the 22nd century ships.

That's a pity. I do wish the BoP was in a fixed wing configuration, since that's what we saw on DS9 most of the time.

True, but I'm still hoping they'll get around to some of the ones on this much longer list:

http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star...ips_Collection

BTW, it's curious that it doesn't say what the name of that Nebula-class miniature will be. I assume it'll probably be one of the ones with the more familiar triangular-shaped pod, so that probably rules out the Phoenix. Considering they may do the prototype Prometheus at some point, that probably rules out the Nebula-class ship with the same name. That leaves only the Sutherland as a ship that played any significant role in an episode's plot, or the Farragut, which gave us an impressive flyby at the end of Generations (before being unceremoniously destroyed off-screen in a DS9 episode). Considering Galoob went with the latter, I wouldn't be surprised if they do as well.

I assume the Akira will be the USS Thunderchild, the only Akira that actually got a name.

In the case of the 60's model, that's true, though the remastered version is MUCH more detailed:
